  • AN EYE PASSES: Gene Prescott, who turned his photographer's eye on events in Arkansas for 38 years as an Arkansas Gazette photographer, died last week at 86. He's shown here at the 50th anniversary of the Central High crisis, an event he photographed along with famous Razorback games, fires, car wrecks, Kiwanis Club officers and all the other work big and small of a daily newspaper staff photographer. A Marine veteran of World War II, he survived the attack on Pearl Harbor and was remembered by reporters as a man whose genial and soft-spoken disposition belied true grit in the face of truculent news figures.

    Just think: If Democrats had turned out 78,000 more votes in three states in November, people could be reveling today in the prospect of impeaching and convicting President Hillary Clinton, not Donald Trump, as some Republican lawmakers had promised to try to do if she won.
